Hi there! I had a chickens (Ameraucanas) as a child and it was an all around wonderful experience. I now have 2 kids, ages 7 and 8, who fell in love with Silkies at our local 4H fair and I am hoping to get some chicks for them in the spring. Right now we are researching and figuring coops/runs/etc. Since its been so long and I was very young I don't remember tons about taking care of chickens so I have been doing a lot of research and I am so glad to have stumbled upon this website. It is a wealth of wonderful information and personal experience and I think it will really help us as we embark on our chicken journey!
